's overwhelming popularity of latino men and women. and i don't include this on the table, but there is a gender gap among the 10 catholics. the two men are less likely to support obama and women but generally speaking the vast majority of latino men are supporting obama. what's driving this is immigration. for latino voters the economy was the first issue most important, but immigration was a close second. roughly one in for latino voters said in the state immigration was their major reason for going to the poll. you can see how that is going to be benefiting barack obama in this election. interestingly while why catholics are more likely to vote for romney overall. they're still a gender gap. respect to the views on abortion, health and human services birth control method, religious freedom and the culture of dependency, it appears the bishops vocal opposition to the health and human services mandate is not something most dashing most catholics from supporting. at least when supplied to catholic hospital or universities. only a slight minority of catholic women and men support the health and h

the voters who are already obama voters, so people like latino voters who lean obama but might not vote anyway, they're trying to get them energized to go out and vote. union voters. then women who are already leaning to obama. the second point is to get early voters out to the polls because that's where the obama team feels like their machine, their ground game, actually makes a difference. they think they have the numbers. the question is can you get them there on election day, if not, get them out early. that made a big difference in 2008. they're trying to do it again this year. then you mentioned women voters. this is where they think the margin of difference can come in. there are a lot of undecided women voters, they think a margin of them and they trying to turn them at the very end, one way they are going to do it, bill clinton is hitting the trail with the president next week on monday. the first time the two men will stump together, going to three battleground states. we'll see that effort in action next week, anderson. >> jim, gloria, jessica, thanks. let us know what you th
. that is the reality. i think this is a good argument -- latino voters could provide the margin of victory for him. he will be under a lot of pressure. he will try to get something through on immigration. republicans have changed on immigration since 2004. when george w. bush was president, he realized the power of latino voters. he was pushing the idea of a more permissive immigration policy. the party swung to the right. look at what happened with john mccain. that is not a tenable position long term. in the state where we are right now, across the west, where latinos are becoming more and more decisive, i do not think you can have a policy that is overly-harsh to a latino voters or immigrants. it is a slow move. you watched the primaries and you saw how much the parties embraced this tough rhetoric. romney is paying a price for that. >> i could add to that list. i do not need to, but there are a number of issues that labor has been very quiet about. particularly some of these treaties, labor agreements with other nations. there are a number of things you could put on the list, but i digress on that

, an important constituency. "the new york times" reporting that both campaigns looking at latinos as deciders in three swing states. that's colorado, nevada, and florida. however, mitt romney trails the president among latinos at the moment in a recent pew poll. when you look at phrases like self-deportation, the issue of the use of illegals, which is seen by tb latino community as being very insensitive, how does this resonate, then? how does this show that the romney campaign does, indeed, value this constituency? >> well, i'm a latina, from florida, originally, now in virginia. but i have to tell you something, immigration's an important issue and governor romney has made it very clear that he has a long-term plan for immigration policy in this country. where he's going to be working with both parties. but, you know, for the hispanics, it's about the economy. and you look at a recent poll from fiu, basically saying that nearly half of the latinos believe that obama ended up breaking that promise. secondly, more than half of the latinas also believe that obama is basically not -- you know,
small percentage that is going to turn out on election day. >> latinos make up 12% of the colorado electorate. there's a recent latino decisions poll which found enthusiasm is way up in that community. some people are more excited this year than they were in '08. what are democrats in your state doing to make sure that latino who support this president overwhelmingly as it seems they do actually get out and vote. >> you're right. the enthusiasm among the latino population is sky high right now. they understand -- we understand. i'm a latino myself. we understand the very clear differences between what mitt romney is trying to sell the latino people and what president obama has shown in his bold leadership. so we just need to continue to show that contrast between the two. i think, frankly, that it's too late for mitt romney amongst the latino community. now it's our job to just ensure that those people that are enthusiastic actually translate to turning their ballots in. >> okay. thanks, rick. >> thanks so much. >>> here's a look at the other stories topping the news now. while geo

people, latinos, african-american, the president has to talk about his record, talk about things he has done, show that he understands their issues and their concerns. be it unemployment, student loans, whatever. or immigration. and then he has to talk about what he has done, what he'll do in the next four years and contrast that with mitt romney's stance. for latinos, for example, i think latinos would be interested to hear the president's version of the dream act he implemented, which is an important issue, versus mitt romney's policy of self-deportation. >> of 11 million people. >> that's a ludicrous claim he's going to do it. it's an insult. anyway, president obama swamps mitt romney among young voters, 18 to 34 age group but they're less enthusiastic this time around. now 52% of young voters call themselves extremely interested in the electric. back in 2008 that number was 20 points higher. and in an effort to fire up young voters, the president has been on a college tour of u.s. campuses. this last week he was at ohio state. let's listen. >> grab your friends, grab everybody in yo

color. maria theresa kumar is president and ceo of vote latino and professor james peterson is professor of african studies at lehigh university. mitt romney's record may be instructive. as governor of massachusetts he gutted affirmative action in the dead of night, during a holiday, without any consultation whatsoever. is this an example of how minorities would fare under a president romney? >> i think it's also indicative just yesterday "the wall street journal" asked mitt romney if he believed in affirmative action, he couldn't answer yes on no, he kept quiet. if he can't give a straight answer on an issue that's not a campaign issue is incredibly telling. this issue before the supreme court, it's supported by 17 senators both democratic and republican. the military is in support of it, as are a lot have business leaders. fortune 100 companies. they are support ty because they recognize demographics are changing. as americans we should make sure we have a fair shot at the american dream, through our educational system. >> absolutely. professor, we know where mitt romney stands. as for

turnout. we have a new poll that shows 8% of latinos have already voted. furthermore, the poll finds that 87% of latinos say they're certain to vote by november the 6th. could that level of turnout do you think, lily, give the president a significant margin of victory in places like florida and nevada? >> absolutely. and we've already talked about electoral maps here, and what happens with latinos is because the market is so concentrated in three key states, in this case colorado, nevada, and florida, which are critical for deciding who makes it to the white house, those are exactly the states where we are starting to see some early numbers. some of the, you know, obama campaign officials have said there's been up to, you know, 15% more early turnout by latinos since they opened in florida. so it's definitely a big, big number, and it's going to continue to rise. you know, colorado voters, you know registered voters that are latino are up by 15% which is a big number. it will make a big difference and we are more enthusiastic, the latest numbers are 45% of all hispanics that are regi
in a more aggressive way. >> i want to ask you about the enthusiasm gap particularly among latino voters. we see in our polling while the president has a huge edge in the latino vote, there's a real drop-off since 2008 when then it was 77% enthusiasm, now it is 59% in terms of hispanic americans. what you going to do to make sure people turn out? >> nare sending me all over the country. i'll be at jefferson-jackson dinner in iowa, i've been it to florida. we have surrogates all across the country. we have a grassroots campaign that has been talked about as the most aggressive, the most focused on social media and on a broad cross-section of speaking to voters. we're going to knock on doors and talk to voters, and we're going to get that vote out. i agree that our work is cut out for us. it's cut out for them, too. that's what elections are all about. >> thank you very much, mr. mayor. i know you're out there at the campaign event where the president is going to be speaking later. you just gave your speech, and thanks for joining us today. >> thank you, andrea. sorry we were a little late, bu
